Fumoto Oil Drain Valve

With the Jeep Medic oil pan skid, oil changes are kind of a PITA. I was looking at this so I could drain the oil without taking off the skid or making a huge mess. Anyone have one or something similar that they would recommend?

I know drain valves like that are popular in the Diesel pickup world. 10+ QTs takes a while to get out. seems to be less of a mess

Makes changing oil a snap. Just need a hose to run to the oil collector.

Looks nice. Does it drain relatively quickly?

yeah, its a pretty cool product. Here's where I first heard about it:

http://www.4x4xplor.com/fumoto.html

Can't get any easier than this:




is $30 with shipping. I've had it for over a year now. Works great! Oil changes are convenient, fast and clean.

F101N *be sure to get it with the "N"ipple

I have never had the Fumota.

But I have the Medic engine skid and had the same exact problems your describing. I bought a Fram Sure Drain for mine on fleebay last year. Not the fastest thing in the world, but it gets the job done with less hassles.

Fleebay Linky where I bought mine 9 Bucks shipped to my door.

I would not advise this without a skidplate over it and even then Im hesitant.....I dont want anything sickin out that far that keeps the oil in my Jeep.......one big stick gets jammed in against it could be broken off......skid plates are prodection but Ive seen a peice of wood get jammed up tween em and rip a hole in a tranny pan......My 2 cents anyway.......g

Ordered one from that link up above. Now hopefully it will get here by the weekend so I can change my oil.

X2 on the sticking out thing, when I first saw them a few years ago I snapped on up, put it in my 98XJ and then stopped, the sight of it sticking out like that was just shouting 'hit a rock, hit a rock'. I got it around somewhere...

I did see one years ago that had a hollow bolt and you stuck a small funnel looking thing in to drain the oil.

It drains pretty quickly. I thought it'd be slow, but it was surprisingly quick. I hadn't even gotten the oil filter off when it was done. I would NEVER have done this w/o having the engine skid on. No way, no how. I DO keep my original drain plug in my trail kit, just in case anything ever happened.

Bringing up an old thread....

Just did my first oil change with the valve installed. Anyone with a skid under the oil pan needs this!!!

1) Hook a hose on the end 2) open the valve 3) open a beer. Doesn't get any easier than that! No mess and pretty fast.

Eric
